Herels a solution of tbo temperance question by it baby. It every one could be made to think ol the loving hearts and the warm cup of tea or coffee waiting at borne they might be saved from tbe temptation to drink that which causes lieadncheB aad many boars of remorse afterwards. Eltth Is to have a depot. General Manager B. M. Fisher told T. F. llansell rim the St. t. AC. 1. B. R. Co, would build a depot last west of the old distillery. We suppose this may b« considered as reliable. But for tho. kindness and courtesy of T. F, HaneeH and Kd Doron In admitting them to the warehouse and mill offices, passengers would have suffered often from oold and Inclement weather while waiting for trains, We hope the managers of Plasa Bluffs will get to work in earnest noon and show people tbat they intend to make a permanent thing ot it. Here is where the whole thing binges. Peo ' pie do not feel like putting their money into an enterprise that Is apparently dead. We hav* to* same grand old bluffs and scenery that w» bare always had; and the promise of hotels, cottage*, amphitheaters, eto. Now let theM promises take a tangible form and tbe enterprise will not lack money or friends. Tbe tlm* for making up slates for township officers U drawing on apace. The Republican party ot this township U in a Rood working condition. We have a reliable township committee, and T. F. llansell is tbe wide awake, stalwart/chairman. Tho old weak- knoed cry "W« can't elect any body," was disproved in tbe county election last fall. We hope, when the time cornea, tbe Republican committee will bring out a straight ticket. A. H.8.

' In Eastern Europe politics is in its usual state of deep complication. The report that the Czav'u mind is affected is generally accepted as true, and any sort of an explosion may be expected in that autocratic quarter. John C.

"We were lying about half a mile oil the beach at tho Bavbndoes, overhauling the standing rigging," said James Gillis, able seaman, to a New York Sun reporter, -'when the mate ordered John Webb, an apprentice boy, and myself into*the yawl, which had boon covered and brought around to the port side, that some painting might be done just abaft the mainmast. It was a terribly hot day, with the water vory warm and the men having littlu iiuorgy. The paint was lowered down to us, and while I used the brush tho bov held the yawl in position. Wo had beun at work for about u quarter of sin hour when (he boy suddenly yolled out, in affright, and as I turned to him he declared that he had seen a horrible-looking object pass under iho boat, and so under the ship. Thoro are plenty of strange creatures Boating about in those waters, and a patch . of seaweed will sometimes assume a queer shape. I laughed at the boy's fears, but at tho same time saw how"pale and frightened he looked. "I iwjgau to vrork again, and had been at it only three or four minutes when the yawl heaved nway from the ship two or three feet, and at the same instant the boy screamed oul agaia. His voice bad scarcely reached my ears -when something flashed before my eyes, something caught nry arm and E ulled it down and pinned it fast to my ody, and in live seconds more I knew what had happened. A devil fish had flung one of his arms about me. Webb was screaming at tho top of ha voice, and as I got a look at him 1 saw that two of the beast's feelers wore clutching him. The arm or feeler which had reached me pinned my arm to my side as if in a vise, making a clean wrap around my body, and the extreme end of the feeler crept up along my neck and face. Talk of piiin; 1 never felt anything like it. The teeth of a bulldog couldn't have hurt worse. It was a burning.-biting, blistering sensation, as if a-live coal had been laid on the flesh. I added ray yells to those of Wobb, but before any. one came to the rail I was jerlted to my knees in the boat nnd saw that the creature's object was to pull me overboard. I hoard the boy go down and thrash about, and then three of the men came to our assistance. "Tho devil fish had outwitted himself. Ho bad gone under the ship and fastened to her bottom or keel, and as soon as he began pulling on us he of course pulled the yawl close against the ship's aide. That closed the gap, and he could not pull us overboard, although I think he would havo upset the yaw/T for wo were both down on her starboard side and she was almost on her beam- end when the men jumped down. They began to cut and slash and buck with their knives, and after two or throe minutes they had us free—not of the arms, but of the creature. VVo were hoisted on board howling arid groaning, with the feelers still biting, and they IHU] to be out from us almost by inches. Wobb got it far worse than 1 did, as he wore a thin cotton shirt and was barefooted. He was bitten on one foot, both hands, and across tho breast, and it was n long two weeks before he was on dock again, bis faco swelled up until one eye was closed, and the poison made mo ill for many dayx. Wherever one of (In) cups or suckers took hold tho skin was entirely taken off, and It scorned as if pins hud boon stuck into Iho raw -llasl), A native doctor brought mo some herbs of which to make a poultice, and, though tbat relieved the pain and helped me to get around again, it was months before my tupe was entirely well. "The devil fish minded tbe loss of bis tliroo arms for only half an hour, at the oud of which time be clutched the empty boat, half oupslml her, and BWKin twice iirouutl the ship ug a deti- unco to tho orew. Two or three musket- balls were tirud into him and ho sank cs£ ii aliroi to be soon no moru during AUf «tW." 4 ,J'' Paper Collnru arid Cuffr, "Paper collars nnd oufl't are becoming popular again," said a Fulton Street haberdasher to a reporter of the Brook* JyU Sayte. "In lal« yoara It was considered vulgar to wear thorn, but now they are ntfoated by all classes of society. I havo ma ny'won It hy customers who will wear nothing .else. Thev ara mostly elderlv gentlemen who "havo been educated to the Kle^ from boyhood nnd are loath to discard the aiyle of linen worn by thtiir diuldies. Taper collars have tho boat flairs in tin; rural districts.

O/ late I havo noticed , lluit many youmf and dressy muh'u'oar, paper linen, and more especially iu 'warm ,woathor. Paper collars c.omo oho:Vp. Some brands are worth moi'o than others. An excellent quality can bo bought for 25 cents a box, which contains.ten collars. Cuffs cost tlm' snmc for » tox containing five pairs..

Tlmy cun bu changed as often as desired, and are comparatively cheap whim it is lakou into consideration that a box can be purchased at about the same price us would be paid for 0119.. linpn collar, But few men can toll paper collars at "a glance. Borne brands make uoai'lv as good an appearance as linen. Cofluloid collars and cuffs are now seldpm worn. Some years ago they were very popular, but only in hot weather. False, or paper bosoms, have also almost wholly disappeared." —' :— !• • »• . A Bold Home. ' "There Is a gentleman In the anteroom, sir," said the railroad President's secretary "who says he owns $40,000 worth of shares in this road, and he will trade all the dividends for the next twenty years for n pass to Memphis." "WhatP tell the porter to put him out. A man who will try to swindle us in tbat barefaced way would steal overcoats*"- -Ex. Ears and Sculo Covered with EC- zomatous Scabs and Sores Cured by Cuticnra. TUp little son, a«ed oiirht years,, nas been af «i. fllotea with Eczema of the scalp, nnd at times a great portion of the body, ever since he was two years old. It began in his ears, and extended to his soa'p .wlilcb became covered with scabs and sores, and from which a Rtlcky fluid poured, out causing intense itching and distress, and leaving his hair matted and llfoless. Underneath these scabs the skin was raw, like a piece of beefsteak. Gradually the hair came out' and was do- stroved, until but a small patch was left at the back of the head. My irlonds In Peabodv know ho* my llttlo boy has suffered. At night he would scratch his head until his pillow was covered with blood. I used to tie bis hands behind htm, and in many ways tried to prevent his scratching: but it was no use. he would scratch. 1 took htm to the hospital an<l to the best physicians In Peabody without success. About this time, sotie friends, who bad been cured by tho Outieura Uemedlo-, prevailed upon me to try them. 1 began to us« them on the 15th of January last. In seven months every particle ol the disease waa removed. Not a spot or scab remains on his scalp to tell the story of lils suffering. His hair has returned, and is thick and strong, and his sculp 03 sweet and clean as any child's In the world. I cannot say enough to express my gratitude for this wonderful cure by the Outlourit Remedies, and wish all similarly afflicted to know that my statement is tiue and without exag geratlon. CHARLES Ala KAY, Oct. 6,3885. Poabody.AIass. I have seen Mr. McKay's boy when badly affected with the Eczema. He was a pitiful sight to look at. I know that he has tried our best physicians, and did all a father could do for a suffering child, but availed nothing. 1 know th it the statements ho has made yon as reuards the curing of his boy by your Untlcura Remedies are true In every particular. WILLIAM J MCCARTHY, S3 Foster street, Peabody, Mass. I do not know ot any Instance In which tho CuUpura Itemedles have failed to produce satisfactory results.
